After I stuffed the piston, in the freezer for 15-20 min just to firm it up.

After I rolled it up and sealed up the ends well, again back in the freezer for about 20 minutes.

I cut a piece of the pvc pipe thin - 1/4" on the miter saw. I used that to trace out the inside diameter on a piece of 3/8" thick acrylic (plexiglass) that I had laying around. Cut close to the line, then used a bench grinder to sand right up to the line.

I didn't have a pusher rod yet, (just used a long wooden spoon.) I'm looking for clear acrylic rod, but didn't find any locally yet, so will probably order it online.
